The Alignment of Molecules in the Nematic Liquid Crystal State
The most distinctive characteristic of nematic liquid crystals is their optical property of anisotropy as evidenced by their birefringence while in a fluid state. They possess an organizational arrangement of their molecules which is intermediate between the disorder of an ordinary liquid and the three dimensional periodicity of crystals.
